Following up on last year’s 2017 by the Numbers, we have some new highlights to celebrate in 2018.
GovWebworks marks its second year with continued focus on public sector clients, and a 21 percent growth rate over the last two years. 2018 launched six new projects, bringing two new states to our client list, and three additional projects to active states. The projects, detailed below, supported agencies in California, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
“We’re gratified to see our specialization in the public sector paying off in our ability to better meet the needs of clients,” says Tom Lovering, Director of Client Engagement. “Our expertise on issues around workforce enablement and benefits access, as well as software modernization, has increased our value to current and prospective clients. We’re grateful for the support of these clients and industry partners as we deepen our focus.”
We count our clients as the biggest gifts of the year. Projects supported by our team in 2018 include:
